Why are you asking me? I didn't impose the restrictions on licensing. I 
couldn't care less what license the forum software uses as long as it's 
the best software for the job. I'd choose vBulletin if it were up to me. 
But I understand if others have a desire to use open source software.

So to answer your question, yes a BSD license is acceptable to me. But 
it's not my project.

If you have re-evaluated the restrictions on licensing and come to some 
other conclusions since that work was done then please do let us know :-)
